HFT unveils new stoppers for pipes

21 March 2017

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT), whose US headquarters are located in Florida, has unveiled a range of lightweight inflatable stoppers for pipes in the oil & gas sector to prevent the entry of debris into pipes.

HFT’s inflatable stoppers are available in cylindrical and spherical formats. According to HFT, where there are fluids inside pipes that need to be retained by a stopper, it is usual to use plugs made of aluminum, steel or rubber. In cases where the fluid is aggressive, nitrile, silicon or Viton rubbers can replace the standard natural rubber seals.

Ron Sewell, Chairman for HFT, said: “Where there is little backpressure and the absence of corrosive petrochemical fluid, lightweight Inflatable Stoppers are a great solution.”
